You most certainly have gone from victim to victory. Keep up the fantastic work! Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me and for including your all-important message. Most definitely, men have to speak out about their abuse, and no longer harbor any guilt or shame for what they suffered, because there is NEVER any shame or guilt for being victimized.

Hello
by: Anonymous

I saw you on Oprah. Your story was very compelling, especially when you mentioned about not celebrating birthdays and Christmas. You celebrated your first birthday at 50 and I wanted to wish you happy birthday from the bottom of my heart.
I wholeheartedly agree with you: "Abuse does not have to be a life sentence".

Thank you for sharing your story.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Anonymous, I don't know that this John Mark is the same as the man who appeared on Oprah. It's possible, but I don't want anyone to jump to conclusions. Perhaps John Mark himself would like to clarify.

You survived and now a full grown man! I am happy for you
by: Cheza Blair Styder

John, after reading your story. It was so devastating after your father did those horrible stuff to you.

But now you are growned up, and you putted it on oprah. I watched it and i was very surprised by the horrible stuff. I am now happy that you placed the past behind you.

Keep this up, and I advise you that you tell your children not to be with grandpa.
